It is an honour to be catering at Garsington Opera for the ninth consecutive year. A great achievement to say the least, and one which continues to inspire us to reach even greater heights to make the 2017 season our best performance yet.

We are delighted that Michelin-starred chef, Michael North, will continue his relationship with us working closely with our culinary team to create this year’s mouth-watering interval dinner menu.

Michael North was born in Oxford in 1979 and developed culinary skills from a young age. His family were ‘foodies’ through and through; his father was a butcher and his mother always cooked grand meals to feed eight hungry children. Michael has spent his whole career in and around Oxford, undertaking enviable positions with Raymond Blanc at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, with Marco Pierre White at Mirabelle, and with Michael Cairns at Gidleigh Park.

Michael is owner of The Nut Tree Inn in Murcott, Oxfordshire which has held a Michelin star for the last nine years.

“I am thrilled to be working with Feasts again in creating and developing the menus for the 2017 Garsington Opera season. It is a joy to work with a team that embraces the special environment of such a prestigious event, from the menu creation through to ensuring the premium delivery of a carefully considered and designed food and beverage offer. The team prides itself on first class delivery, and looks forward to giving you another wonderful opera season.”

“We are delighted that Michelin-starred chef Michael North will be joining us for the second year. We had wonderful compliments from our patrons last season with feedback such as ‘certainly the best food of any festival we have been to this year’. We have selected several signature dishes from Michael’s Nut Tree menus which we are sure will be just as popular with our guests. We hope you will also enjoy our interesting selection of wines. Our aim is to delight you with treats both on and off the stage.”
